rchitect's Specifications
The contractor shall provide a complete electrically supervised, battery
backed-up, fire and burglary alarm system. The system shall be complete with a
multi-zone alarm system with the capacity of up to 8 burglar or Class B fire zones
of which up to 8 may be wireless zones. All zones shall be supervised and be
capable of operating listed heat detectors, smoke detectors, alarm contacts,
motion detectors, glassbreak detectors, vibration detectors, and other listed fire
and burglary alarm detection devices. The system shall have 1 low current voltage
output and 1 high current voltage output. All outputs shall be programmable to
activate for 1 of 20 options. System shall be complete with a 4 wire unshielded
(QUAD) communications bus that allows system modules and keypads to be added
anywhere on the bus up to 1,000 feet (330m) per leg from the main control panel.
Bus shall be able to withstand temporary shorts of up to +12V without control
panel damage. The system shall be capable of providing 550mA of 12VDC auxiliary
power for alarm devices.
The alarm panel shall be capable of digital communications via regular telephone
line, LINKS cellular, and LINKS long range radio to two separate monitoring stations
or locations with 2 account numbers and 3 telephone numbers. LINKS
cellular communication shall be capable of backup or sole communications to
monitoring stations and for upload/download operations. The system communicator
shall be capable of communicating in all major formats including SIA and Contact
ID. Events transmitted shall be programmable to include: fire alarms, burglary
alarms, trouble alarms, supervisory conditions, alarm restoral codes, opening
(disarming) and closing (arming) codes, partial closing codes, and opening after
alarm codes. The system shall be capable of paging personnel on the occurrence
of any of the above events selected by the owner. The system shall be capable of
transmitting a test code to the monitoring station(s) on a programmable daily,
weekly or monthly frequency at a regular time of day.
There shall be a 700mA, PTC protected, supervised bell/siren circuit that will drive
a bell/siren until reset or silenced. Siren output shall be programmable as steady
or pulsed for each zone.
The alarm panel shall be equipped with EEPROM memory to retain all program
information even if all AC and battery power is lost, and shall have integral static
and lightning protection circuitry.
To prevent false alarms and unnecessary transmissions to monitoring stations, the
alarm panel shall have SIA false alarm prevention features, programmable swinger
shutdown by zone, audible exit delay, audible exit fault, opening after alarm reporting,
arm/disarm bell squawk, urgency on entry delay, “quick exit”, programmable
transmission delay by zone, and transmission delay on AC failure, TLM trouble, low
battery, recent close code, and cross zone police code,
The system shall have stay/away and stay arming capability to allow the user to
remain on the premises while the system is armed. A quick-arm feature shall allow
users without access codes to arm the system and exit. A door chime feature shall
cause the keypad to beep when a selected door is opened or closed.
The system shall support any combination of up to 8 dual-language LCD and LED
type keypads with backlit displays. Keypads shall be surface-mounted and
capable of fully programming and operating the system. Each keypad shall be
assignable to operate the entire system. Dual-language keypads shall be complete
with 32 character liquid crystal display (LCD) to provide plain language
programming instructions, operating instructions, and display of all alarms and
supervisory conditions. They shall be capable of toggling between languages by
pressing a keypad key combination. LED keypads shall have 8 zone indicators. All
keypads shall have keypad-activated emergency alarms for panic, emergency, fire,
and duress; 5 programmable function keys or programmable keypad functions;
LED indicators for Ready, Armed, and Trouble or System; and shall be equipped
with a piezo buzzer to provide audible feedback for correct key entries, pre-alert,
and trouble.
Each keypad shall have one zone input to allow a zone detector to be wired
directly to the keypad.
System shall support wireless operation with up to 8 wireless panic pendants, 16
wireless arm/disarm keys, and 4 wireless handheld keypads.
The system shall allow 39 access codes including 32 user codes, 1 master code,
2 duress codes, 2 supervisor codes, 1 installer code, and 1 maintenance code.
The system shall be uploadable/downloadable to allow programming and operation
from a directly connected local computer, or from a remote computer over a
telephone line or LINKS cellular communications equipment. Remote access shall
be controlled by the owner to prevent unauthorized access.
The system shall support a 300, 1200, 2400 or 4800 bps serial printer connected
to the communications bus up to 1,000 feet (330m) from the control panel. The
printer shall log all system events and transactions with time and date stamp.
Information shall be stored in the system’s 128 event buffer which can be
examined from the LCD keypad or via DLS software.
The system shall meet UL standards as required for relevant type of application.
